Salem DUI Defense Attorney Wins DMV Suspension Case


 DMV suspension won;

A new case in the Oregon appellate courts has resulted in 3 recent cases won on license suspensions.   When a person is asked to take a breath test, It is typical for a police officer to tell the person that “if you don’t take the breath test, we will get a warrant and take your blood.” 

Something similar was present in several cases defensed by Gig Wyatt. a DUI defense attorney in Salem, Oregon, after reading this appellate case and the judge agreed that the comments are unlawful, resulting in a ruling in our favor. 

 “Telling a person they will get a needle stuck in their arm if they refuse the breath test is unlawful,” Gig Wyatt said.  We have had several of these suspensions dismissed for this reason.  

The Implied Consent law does not contemplate this type of coercion and its good to see the law reflect that.  Gig Wyatt has been in practice for over 30 years and specializes in criminal defense.

DUII CASE DISMISSED

 


Dismissal of DUII

My client received a dismissal of DUII and Reckless Driving charges stemming from an incident in Lincoln Co.

A careful review of the video revealed repeated attorney requests that were ignored by the arresting officer. 

Both in the field and at the police station, my client asked for counsel. I noted that the police report was notably silent on this issue.

The officer may have believed that someone would not review the video, rely exclusively upon his report, and concede in the face of embattled credibility. Thorough review of all available evidence is critical to justice and fair outcome.
